Kimberlite, I have mac at home. Tried at my office with a pc and it works. How fast were you going and does your boat surf well? thomas

Man, I''m getting scared again . . . bugeyed pirates and such.... had dinner with Eric and went through KIMBERLITE the other night on the dock at AYH in Red Hook. Talk about a restoration project. I thought the boat was a Pacific Seacraft the dozens of times I walked by it without noticing. It is a COMPLETELY retroed, spiffed up, rigged-fo-bear Tartan 37. Beautiful. Thanks for the yellowfin and wasabi dinner, Eric. I have a sneaking feeling you can check this board, based on what I saw on the boat for electronics, from your anchorage at Peter Island in the BVI......KW

Ahoy, mojizm, nice name lets here more about the drunken women. Big Red 56 the pirate thinks you might have potential to be as scurvy a knave as he is. I agree with you on roller furling. Great on a good day but bad in a blow. Then again what do I know I snap bowsprits overloading my front stay anyway. I mean if something breaks you must be having a good day. Arrh,

I have changed hank-on head sails on boats your size in some pretty nasty stuff; Never had a problem. Once I had to be hoisted up the mast of a 38'' boat, by two drunken women, with a squall approaching, to cut the halyard of a hopelessly jammed furler. Had I been alone the consequences would have been grim. The failure was due to a mis-aligned lead at the masthead causing a wrap. Stowing large headsails is no fun and with good quality gear and proper installation furlers sure are nice, but what if.........

I might have the only boat on San Diego Bay without a headsail furler! It''s my first sailboat, so I don''t have any significant experience with them. Probably about $2,000(?) to modify my 35 footer''s rig and headsails, so no thanks. Seems like a lot of money for a very minor convenience, and something that contributes nothing to performance.

Rob, throw away the furler. Better yet, ship it to me. I thought I was the only one without. Seriously, I appreciate these comments. We''re haveing the same argument.

Jeff - Thanks for your input. It gives me a bit more to think about. I''m in my 50''s and I can relate to the lifting issues. I guess I need to spend a little more time looking into this before I make any significant decisions.

eric & thomas, thanks also for your inputs. I probably need to also look into more options than a straight "either - or".

Thanks again everyone......now to put on the thinking cap.......
